Piano (Wo)man

I swear, our dog has an uncanny sixth sense for knowing when I’m taking pictures for the blog. I wanted to participate in this week’s Style Imitating Art linkup and realized when I got home that I didn’t have any full-length shots of my outfit. My camera is being funky right now, so this phone picture (propped up on my bathroom counter- hence the white space at the bottom), is the best I have. I got the phone set up, hit the timer button, and got into position, and before I knew it, I heard the running click of dog toenails, and the below shot was born. At least he’s cute, right?

I loved my earrings today! (But ew, sorry about the hair on the shot. There’s a difference between keeping it real and not editing. I fall into the latter, unfortunately…). I got them at a fall craft fair last year from a lady who had made all kinds of Scrabble tile jewelry. I wish I still had her card because I’d like another pair!

So now for the Style Imitating Art bit. Here is this week’s painting, At the Piano by James McNeill Whistler

 

And here is my interpretation, complete with a goofy face…

This was a phone picture too. It’s amazing what the right lighting can do! Also, special thanks to two of my best guy friends from college for arranging my “photo shoot”. Gotta love the people who you can ask to take your picture at a piano on a stage without giving an explanation! 🙂

Shades of Green

Last month, Jen at Librarian for Life and Style blogged an outfit that featured varying shades of teal green. I really liked the idea of wearing variations of a color, instead of being matchy-matchy.

I wore this outfit last month during Tennessee’s 965 days of rain in a row, so my hair got a nice rain-inspired pouf to it by the end of the day!

This picture should’ve been more cropped but WordPress’ media center evidently doesn’t care for me!

I had to include these two pictures because they were the best two that showed how our pup “helped” me blog. I think he has a blogging career.

I didn’t get a good picture of my earrings, but they were a lighter shade of green. Overall, I liked this outfit. I wouldn’t have thought to put this combination together, so I appreciated the inspiration from Jen!
